Additional Materials
3 buttons, about 1 in. (25 mm) diameter Sewing needle and thread
GAUGE:
10 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
M1L (make 1 - left slanting) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles from front to back and placing it onto the left needle.

Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

M1R (make 1 - right slanting) An increase worked by inserting right needle into side leg of st one row below the next st on left needle, place the loop on left needle and knit it through the back loop - 1 st increased.

skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch - 1 st decreased.

yo (yarn over) An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows: 1.

Bring yarn to front, between the needles.

2.

Take yarn to back, over the right needle.

This creates the new st.

You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.



PATTERN STITCH Sl st Pattern (worked over 4 sts) Row 1 (RS): P1, k2, p1.

Row 2 (WS): K1, sl 2 wyif, k1.

Rep Rows 1 and 2 for Sl st pattern.

NOTES:
1.

Jacket is worked in 5 pieces: Back, Left Front, Right Front, and 2 Sleeves.

2.

The collar and front bands are worked as one with each of the Fronts.

3.

The lower edge of the Back and Fronts is worked in Garter st (k every row) with columns of 4 sts worked in Sl st pattern.

After 10 rows, the Garter st changes to St st (k on RS, p on WS) and the columns of Sl st pattern are continued.

4.

Markers are used to define the sides of the columns of the Sl st pattern and the front bands.

If you can "read" your work, you may not need the markers for the Sl st pattern.

5.

Back and Fronts are shaped with increases at sides.

6.

Decs and compensating incs are worked along the edges of the Sl st pattern.

These will not change the st count, but they will cause the Sl st pattern sts to shift diagonally across the Jacket.

7.

When you see "work even" in the instructions, this means to continue on in the pattern st you have established without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.

8.

With yarn in front (wyif) refers to the side of the work facing you as you work the row.

To move yarn from front to back or back to front, bring yarn between needles.

Taking care not to wrap yarn over a needle.
